Warning , after reading this review, you'r gonna hate your old DAP

Posted

Pros: SQ...SQ...SQ

Cons: Bugs everywhere,up, down...

  So after some long waiting I finally received my Ibasso DX100. Its the first DAP from Ibasso, and I think it has done  a very good one. I will not review the SQ of the DX100, not until I get it burned for some  time, for now I will talk about the UI . Its an android gingerbread in its simplest form. The Screen is, well lets say its adequate, but not build for video, reading your emails or surfing, as it made my eyes soar after couple of minutes (as coming from the Galaxy Note with is SAMOLED and the Sony Z). It has a good, no, brilliant music player, sound wise. But it has many, many bugs and one of the main it hangs/stalls a lot. Where as the Poweramp player...

It's a Walkman!

Posted

Pros: Fantastic clarity, sound-stage

Cons: No expansion memory, come on SONY

The build quality is nice, sophisticated, feels like a light brick, but the screen is prone to smudges, lots!!!! I never faced this with my Galaxy note. The screen colors are nice but compared to Samsung's AMOLED, if feels dull. The sound is detailed, clear and neutral, with a shy bass. I was able to hear sounds I never realized they were there with other DAPS, nice one SONY. It is best suited for live concerts and instrumental tracks (it Shines with them). But when amped with a good amp, the fun factor pops and you start appreciating what you were missing. All my reviews were done with atracplus 256 or atrac loss-less. I can talk about it for hours, but lets keep it short and...

My first DAC, and what a DAC!

Posted

Pros: portable and powerful

Cons: Give me sometime, maybe I'll find something

     Centrance LX Dacport is being put to test with my O2 amp, and let me tell you they were made for each other. Music never sounded so good. Natural sounds, beautiful and precise instrument separation, the most important thing is balance nothing overwhelms neither the Bass or the treble, but the mids are really what I enjoy, along with the soundstage, not big but it is there and what a stage! My advice to anyone thinking of getting his first DAC, is to make this one on the top of his list. The nice thing about both the amp and the Dacport LX is the size , where both can be carried in a pc/any bag easily and you can enjoy audiophile quality music anywhere &...

Best semi-portable for its price and sound

Posted

Pros: Excellent workmanship and wonderful amp

Cons: I own only one

    When I first read about this amp, I was skeptic about the sincerity of the  measurements at first, but I had to try it myself after his claims. After preordering, it came about  6 weeks later, and what an amp, I just now knew how wonderful this amp is, esp. with my Centrance LX Dacport, they were made for each other. Music never sounded so good. Natural sounds, beautiful and precise instrument separation, the most important thing is balance nothing overwhelms neither the Bass or the treble, but the mids are really what I enjoy, along with the soundstage, not big but it is there and what a stage! My advice to anyone thinking of getting his first amp, is to...

Pros: Very warm sound

Cons: Bulky, Bulky

Very nice player, it is my second favorite DAP. But will be my best player if I update it with RockBox, and that's if we have a stable version!!!

If you want a DAP for the best sound quality and value look nowhere.

Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350

Pros: Wonderful sound

Cons: The right side cup was not holding in its position horizantly

I got the Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350  because of Jude's review, and I thank him for that, the sound is fantastic the portability factor is very welcomed, I love this headphone it sounds great and easy to handle. I wished the metal piece that moves the cups up and down would stay in its position esp. the right one .

My Favorite/best amp

Posted

Pros: Great sound

Cons: Gain switch broke after 1st time of use

My favorite portable Amp from my collection, Everything works as has been reviewed and confirmed. My only complain is for the gain switch which broke easily during my first use! Well you can't have it all. Sound wise it rocks and deserves your consideration
